As many of you already know, Ani and I have a team riding 32 miles in the Tour de Cure again this year and would love to see some support. The money we raise will go to the American Diabetes Association to help find a cure for diabetes. Our team's goal is $1000, twice the amout we raised in 2005. The ride starts at Silver Lake Park in Rochester on June 3rd. If you would like to join us or would simply like to make a charitable (tax deductable) donation, please feel free to go to our team page and join or choose a rider to make a donation to.

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
